We weren't able to order the famous chicken because we had a plane to catch. Nonetheless, the seabass and porkchop were wonderful. The flavor of the meats and the vegetable medley that goes with each, when eaten together led to a very Top Chef moment....More

Delicious sweet potato soup, very good ricotta gnocchi and tasty desserts. This was a highlight of my dining experiences in San Francisco.

Cocktails were excellent. Caesar had amazing croutons and good dressing. The most amazing dish was the chicken for two and the shoestring potatoes. Not sure if we waited a whole hour, because the cocktails were flowing, but definitely worth the wait. The portion was huge...More

This is a wonderful place to have a nice Saturday afternoon lunch. Weather in San Francisco and the food was very good. The chicken takes a while but is worth the wait.

We were able to get into this restaurant thanks to the efforts of my daughter. Really great high end dining. The famous chicken is well worth the wait. Service was exceptional. Dress code is more casual than I would expect. Food is excellent.

The Zuni cafe has been a San Francisco stand by for quite a long time -- and deservedly so. The food is really good -- and they've migrated to Mediterranean from southwest. The service is professional and friendly. And the space is unusual and interesting....More

I enjoyed a dinner with my parents at Zuni Cafe during a family trip to San Francisco. I've had it on my list of must visits for a while and it didn't let us down. The service was great and the chicken...so...good! The gnocchi and...More

We'd heard so much about the Zuni Cafe, we just had to try it. The food was really good - very fresh - and our waitress was over the top friendly. It's certainly unique in menu offerings, decor, and vibe. But it wasn't our favorite...More

Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky
shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to
imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of
a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation

Zuni's menu changes every day, so the guarantees are hamburgers and pizza for lunch. But I have eaten many lunches there and those excellent pork chops have always been on the menu. That said, if you are a party of two, one... More
